FLUID POWER: Hollingsworth & Vose (H&V) recently introduced Capaceon™ filter media, a new line of products for automotive and heavy duty air applications that offers 10 to 30 percent greater dust-holding capacity.
In automotive applications, Capaceon filter media offers improvements in initial efficiency across all basis weights - which extend from 78 lb to 95 lb per 3,000 sq ft. It combines unprecedented service life with the industry’s greatest water and smolder resistance. In addition, the media is treated with solvent-based phenolic resins. This provides superior water resistance in panel air filter designs and also will not require a post-pleating curing process.
In heavy duty air use, Capaceon’s benefits focus on increased filter lifetime and higher dust-holding capacity. It achieves a higher level of engine protection from contaminants in the harshest environments.
Capaceon filter media was designed specifically for application across an extensive range of original equipment and aftermarket requirements. The material is now available for manufacture and shipment to customer locations.
